hi,thanks for query.Cholesterol increase in body when intake and expenditure are not same,means you are taking fats and calories in more amount then your body is burning.Plan her diet well,give her more salads and fruits,avoid high fat containing food,snacks etc.Ask her to exercise daily for at least 30 minutes in a day,keep watching her weight.Repeat lipid profile after 6 months to see effect of diet and exercise.If you need you can help from dietitian.If all this does not help she may need medicines to lower cholesterol.
wishing you good health.

dear baskar, one easy way of reducing your wife's cholesterol is by eating daily 5 to 6 bits of garlic on empty stomach. This old method was the secret of our ancestors health. This method has been now proved by modern scientific research. Do not chew the garlic, as the saliva destroys the substance present in the garlic which reduced cholesterol .
